NYC cabbies survive 'Operation: Secret Rider'

Thursday February 07, 2008, 4:30 AM

Undercover inspectors are finding cabbies largely play by New York City's rules when it comes to cell phones.
Inspectors and police officers have taken more than 1,200 rides disguised as everyday passengers since "Operation: Secret Rider" began Jan. 23. Taxi & Limousine Commission officials said Wednesday that fewer than 100 summonses for cell-phone use have been issued so far.
TLC Chairman Matthew Daus said he is encouraged, but the initiative will continue.
The undercover agents look for drivers talking on cell phones while the cab is moving, refusing to accept credit cards or otherwise violating regulations.
Representatives of the Taxi Workers Alliance, an advocacy group, called the program sneaky and disrespectful to drivers
